     Trying to install mailman mailman-2.1.13rc on Solaris 10x86.   
Getting an error when I try to do make install.  I found similar post on 
this error on making sure using correct version of python.  I have two 
version of python installed, there is the native python that comes with 
Solaris, version 2.4.6, and then I installed a newer version from 
Blastwave 2.6.2.  It doesn't matter what version I use, still get same 
error with make install.

setenv PATH 

./configure  --prefix=/userM/mail-services/mailman 
--with-python=/opt/csw/bin/python --with-cgi-gid=15
     runs fine with now errors
     runs with no errors.
